Advanced RADIOFREQUENCY treatments

LipoTherapeia  |  London



It is now widely accepted that radiofrequency is the best currently available technology for non-invasive, non-surgical skin tightening and cellulite removal. Radiofrequency treatments are used in aesthetics as a way to deliver intense heat to tissues deeper than the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) with the aim to boost collagen production, circulation and (optionally, depending on treatment depth) fat release from those tissues.

Radiofrequency is based on the fact that very high frequency electrical currents (300kHz-40MHz) penetrate the superficial layers of the skin without heating them, only heating selected tissues, such as the dermis (middle skin layer where collagen-producing cells are located) and hypodermis (deepest skin layer where big collagen structures and fat tissue are located).

With a deep radiofrequency treatment, skin looseness and cellulite can be treated at the same time for smoother, slimmer firmer skin with one treatment. This is the essence of radiofrequency procedure: to provide a deep, focused action where it matters without causing irritation, redness and burns which can occur when the surface of the skin is affected.



However, not all radiofrequency treatments are the same. In fact most radiofrequency treatments do not "work". This is because there is now an abundance of very cheap, very ineffective radiofrequency machines on the market and treatments are typically offered by inexperienced therapists, with minimal training and even poorer knowledge of the science of radiofrequency. Furthermore, not all radiofrequency treatments act on the deeper tissues.

In fact most RF treatments are superficial, thereby defying the purpose for which radiofrequency technology was developed. Most radiofrequency treatments actually act on the epidermis (and to a lesser extent on the dermis) thereby failing to act on cellulite and on deep collagen structures (deep connective tissue).

By definition, all bipolar radiofrequency treatments (including the so called tripolar, tetrapolar and octapolar varieties), and all capacitive radiofrequency treatments, are very superficial and do not significantly act on the deeper tissues. Given that most machines available on the market are bipolar and/or capacitive machines, it could be argued that most RF treatments available are superficial.

This is the main reason why many women who try radiofrequency anti-cellulite treatments get disappointed: because they try the wrong treatment. Contrary to erroneous marketing claims, bipolar RF or capacitive RF treatments are not very effective for cellulite or deep skin firming.

In addition to being too superficial, most RF machines installed in salons and clinics worldwide, are too weak to offer any significant benefits. Treatment with power of as low as 35 Watts is essentially a waste of money and time. On the other hand, a high-powered but superficial RF treatment will only cause burns on the surface (epidermis) and will only affect a little the deeper skin tissues (dermis and hypodermis), if used at high power settings. This is something which defies the purpose of high power settings.



On the other hand, all radiofrequency equipment which feature both high-power AND deep-acting radiofrequency, by definition are deep radiofrequency treatments. Depending on the treatment cream/gel and the protocols used, the treatment can accurately focus on specific deep tissues, what we call Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™.

These radiofrequency treatments penetrate deep, at exactly the right layer inside the skin (dermis and subdermis), where the deep subcutaneous fat, cellulite fat and connective tissue are located. This affects the deep collagen structures, collagen cells and fat cells, in order to offer deep skin tightening, cellulite reduction and topical fat loss.

Because the surface of the skin does not get heated significantly, with Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ there is no pain and no danger of excessive redness, burns or other irritation which quite often occur with many radiofrequency treatments available today (provided that the therapist is well trained in the provision of the treatment).

This focused action of Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ means that that treatment is both effective, comfortable, super safe, pain-free and downtime-free.



Here at LipoTherapeia, all our Meso-CRF® treatments are based on Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™. Our high-intensity, deep-tissue technology and our advanced treatment protocols allows us to provide maximum RF treatment, at the minimum possible treatment time, thereby saving you time and money and offering you great results.

Unlike other treatments, the radiofrequency component of our treatment works exactly where it counts, i.e. on the dermis and hypodermis, where the skin supporting collagen fibres are found, for an intensive anti-ageing, firming and lifting effect. Deep collagen fibres tighten, leading to an immediate skin tightening / lifting. Circulation is significantly increased, leading to skin cells nourishment, rejuvenation and detoxification, which manifests as a fresher, more youthful looking face. Fat cells (adipocytes) on the hypodermis are encouraged to release fat (lipolysis) and die off early (adipolysis / apoptosis) and replaced by collagen cells (fibroblasts).

We do not do superficial (bipolar or capacitive) radiofrequency treatments at all and we actually specialise in Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™: in the last 6 years we have provided 6,000 Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ treatments on the body and face, accumulating valuable expertise and experience.

Thanks to our advanced treatment protocols based on Physics - not beauty therapy myths - this treatment is actually not only non-invasive and pain-free but actually pleasant and requires zero downtime, so it is ideal as a lunchtime procedure or before an important social occasion or work event, when you want to look your best.

For maximum results, our Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ treatments are combined with ultrasound cavitation and multi-ingredient electro-mesotherapy and the most amazing natural active ingredients, such as 95%+ pure forskolin, caffeine, EGCG / green tea extract, resveratrol, curcumin, gotu kola extract, ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid and multiple other actives. There is literally no other skin tightening / anti-cellulite clinic in London, or anywhere in the world, that provides ALL these advanced technologies, actives and knowledge to it's clients.

Quite often Meso-CRF® provides some impressive results that you can feel, touch and see even from the first session, but we make no hyped up / exaggerated promises about instant miracles with one session / "fat melting" / "lose 10 years in a lunchtime procedure" and the like. We aim to offer you the best possible treatment but combined with honest service.

Of course Meso-CRF® is not a miracle treatment, but if you suffer from cellulite or skin laxity on the face and body then Meso-CRF® is the most advanced SAFE non-surgical skin tightening ' cellulite treatment available, provided by a real radiofrequency expert with 16 years' experience (please note that, as with any treatment or body product, results vary from person to person).

Meso-CRF®  is ideal after liposuction, smart lipo / laser lipo, mini lipo, bodytite, cellulite, tummy tuck, vaser to tighten loose skin and remove residual fat lumps and cellulite after your operation.

Radiofrequency treatment: the science



Vitamin C reduces adipogenesis, capacitive/resistive radiofrequency markedly reduces adipogenesis and actually leads to adipocyte apoptosis. The combination leads to severe adipocyte apoptosis (programmed cell death) [In-vitro study: Repressive effects of a capacitive-resistive electric transfer (CRet) hyperthermic apparatus combined with pro-vitamin C on intracellular lipid-droplets formation in adipocytes,]
